Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality cable in easy roll box I’ve used this cable for years and it’s so easy to roll out of the box, with no twisted cables when feeding through ceilings and voids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cable at a great price Ordered to extent a ring circuit and add a couple of radials. Nice cable to work with, easy to strip and terminate. There's an offer on at the moment for some ideal connectors (which I wasn't aware off and never got informed at the checkout) boohoo!

Cable rating 2.5mmsq twin and earth

. Quoted in previous Q/A the copper conductors are actually 1.5mmsq cross section area. In table 4D5 of BS 7671 Should we base the current rating on 1.5mmsq? In the previous Q/A the current ratings, based on 4D5, are quoted for 2.5mmsq copper?
Asked by: Grey914
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support. Looking back through the previous Q&A on this product page, the only mention of a 1.5mm conductor is for the uninsulated circuit protective conductor (or CPC), which is a reduced size compared to the main insulated conductors, which should be 2.5mm. Therefore, we would always advise using the 2.5mm current ratings for this cable. Should you be in any further doubt, we would advise consulting a qualified electrician.

Suitable for Garage sockets

Is the cable okay to use for a ring circuit in a detached garage?
Asked by: Fidge73
Thank you for contacting Prysmian. This cable is used throughout the UK in domestic installations for ring circuits. Further guidance can be found in Appendix 15 of BS7671. We would advise that if this is a new circuit, it needs to be connected by a Part P Electrician.
